Default Favorite small stream line?

Looking to purchase new fly line and just wondering what your favorite small stream line is and why? I really hate the tip sinking, so wondering what about all the new "Dyna Tip" vs
"Dry Tip Technology", etc. Does anyone still use DT? Thanks in advance.

S.A. XPS because it is supple,no problems with tip sink,and you can get in a light gray color.I use the double taper.

I just tried the cortland dyna tip this May, love the avacado color for the smokies, water was really high when I was there so I didn't fish as much as I wanted to, but the tip floats really well and it mends very easily even in big fast water.

Dawgvet,

I use DT all the time. Turn em' around after they get worn. In the park though, I use budget lines since I'm wearing them out a lot on rocks, trees, etc.

Thought I would post a line question. What is everyones opinion on the fly lines that already have a loop at the end for a quick attatchment of your leader? Are these manufactured loops as durable as a hand tied one?? What manufacturers make these, and are they worth buying? Any help would be appreciated! Thanks, flyguys.

Check out the thread entitled "next fly line purchase" in the Tackle and Gear heading of the message board. There was some info on both factory loops and replacing loops that may help you.
